I have been working at UCLA full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Flexibility, great people, have learned a great deal, reliable colleagues and employers you can count on. Really a great place!

Cons

I worked for about a year at UCLA before I became a student doing the PhD program. The only con is that the PhD program takes a long time after which job opportunities are uncertain.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Most people at UCLA - students, faculty, staff, etc. - are great!

    Current Employee - Research Associate in Los Angeles, CA

    I have been working at UCLA full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    None, really. I am serious, perhaps the healthcare benefits? Parking there is a mess. And expensive. Traffic sucks. The buildings are either really good or terrible to work in.

    Cons

    Backstabbers,liars, lazy people with no incentives to do work, but they really love to get into your life. They are all nosy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Resign.
